Russia to expose evidence of US Bioweapon research in Ukraine
Russia has detected more than 50 US-run biolabs near its borders, and it plans to present the evidence to the UN Office in Geneva next week.
Russia is preparing to present evidence to the UN Office in Geneva next week that proves the Pentagon has been illegally researching bioweapons at US-run labs in Ukraine, a senior Russian military official said Saturday.
"We want that organizations overseeing the implementation of the [Biological and Toxin Weapons] Convention and the international community to take note of these biological threats," Igor Kirillov told a news briefing.
The head of Russia's Radiation, Chemical, and Biological Protection Force, Igor Kirillov, revealed evidence that the US and Ukraine had violated articles I and IV of the convention. The convention clearly prohibits signatories from developing, producing, or stockpiling dangerous agents or toxins and permits them to take necessary action to prevent such actions.
Igor revealed to sources on August 4 that the Kremlin was "considering the possibility that the US Agency for International Development (USAID) is involved in the emergence of the new coronavirus."
He told sources that the organization launched a program called PREDICT in 2009, which was used to detect emerging disease threats at their source.
The program was used to study new strains of Coronavirus and captured bats that carry these viruses, the official said.
In response to these statements, US Under Secretary for Political Affairs, Victoria Nuland, which has waged a misinformation war regarding US Biolabs in Ukraine, has repeatedly dismissed the many invitations Russia has sent to discuss the matter.
Russian foreign ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova revealed in March that data on biological laboratories found in Ukraine does not help the case of the US against claims regarding its compliance with the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BTWC).
Additionally, Moscow found that President Biden's son, Hunter Biden, helped finance military research into dangerous pathogens at Biolabs in Ukraine, depending on new emails from his infamous laptop.
Russia has detected more than 50 US-run Biolabs near its borders, Kirillov said. China’s estimates suggest there are more than 300 US-affiliated Biolabs operating in 30 countries. Nonetheless, their presence has increased the number of infectious outbreaks and has led to the spread of non-endemic pathogens.
Russia has recorded a rise in cases of brucellosis, Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever, West Nile fever, and African swine fever in its territories bordering Ukraine in the past decade, the official said further.
He said the Russian Defense Ministry had documents proving that Ukraine had been shipping abroad dangerous pathogens and disease carriers as well as tissue and blood samples taken from patients. At least 16,000 such samples have been transferred to the US and its allies in the past years.
